Carme Lemniscates

Carme Lemniscates is the award-winning author, illustrator and designer of several critically acclaimed children’s books including Seeds, Birds, and Trees (Gold Nautilus Award winner 2018). Her mixed media works combine monotype, collage, woodcut and digital media, and each book converges with the same spirit from beginning to end. Carme won the 2017 SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for self-written and self-illustrated El jardín mágico. She also illustrated Jennifer Adams’ I am a Warrior Goddess, Kate Coombs’ BabyLit Little Poets board book series, and Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s Grandmas’ Gardens. In 2010, after more than fifteen years illustrating and desgining children’s books for publishers, Carme founded Lemniscates Studio in her home city of Barcelona to create her own children’s book projects. She has since published nine books in Spain, the United States and Brazil. Her book Silence won 2012 ForeWordReviews Book of the Year Bronze Award, and her app Little Lost Rabbit Finds a Family was selected as one of the best children’s storybook apps by Kirkus Reviews in 2012. In 2016, she won the Serra d’Or Critics’ Award for Arbes, which is published in the UK as Trees.
